Aluminium Penny Boat Challenge!

This week in Science, children worked in groups to design and build a small boat from Aluminium foil. The goal for each group was to build and modify their boat to hold as many pennies as possible. The winning boat held 15 pennies.

Bourekas

This week children worked with Mrs Halter to make ‘Bourekas’ in the Kosher Kitchen. Our focus was working hygienically and using tools safely. Children used a range of tools including a potato peeler. Can you share a ‘Top Tip’ for using a peeler safely?

Can you remember the filling to your Bourekas? After tasting our delicious finished product, we began to evaluate. Children looked at WWW (What Went Well) and EBI (Even Better If). One suggestion was to change the filling by adding cheese.
